JB I cant believe they only froze one
My clinic judges the embryos on quality and cell no's. I had 3 - 2 cell embryos frozen. I had a FET yesterday and they used one of the 2 cells - which 24 hours after thawing had grown to a 4 cell and the embryologist (sp?) said it looked 'perfect'. But as Becky said it doesn't matter as you are not going to need any totsicles!!

maybe they are trying to conserve space in storage at my clinic! I stupidly presumed in our conversation before transfer on sat with the embrologist they would freeze the 5 cell at that stage as well..............but i am guessing someone else had the job that arvo of freezing the embies and just stuck to the clinic rules of 6 cells and more on day 3 to freeze. I am quite annoyed because Analeise was a 4 cell embie on day 3 that moved to an 8 cell on day 4 and was then compacting by the time we transferred her. What can i do now though? You really have to be quite clear with embrologists and doctors about what you want from your cycle.

my beta is Sept 8th. Now whats with your clinic only liking to see even celled embies? I havent heard that before! Glinda any thoughts? We transferred a 7 cell as well as the 10 cell, they never mentioned anything about uneven celled embies? Thats interesting!

No dr or embryologist has ever commented anything to me regarding odd vs even celled embryos. All I know is that my clinic has success from 4 cells or better. So for those of you that never make it to 8 cells on day 3 or a blast on day 5, do not fear!

Didn't I already tell you to stop looking at studies? Okay, then read this one then
. It's inconclusive, mate. I wish we could be given guarantees but it just doesn't work like that.
